couple of questions

who makes good reliable durable rangefinders?
whats the typical longest yardage they can read accuratly?
who makes the longest reaching model?

im looking for something to range as far off as possible accurately (1000-1500+ yds) and handle being transported through the woods at the range and my general rough treatment while shooting

The Swarovski out-ranges just about anything within 4x its cost. I have ranged bushes and trees at 1999 yards with mine.

At this time, I think they just have the one model, called the "Laser Guide."

I have a Vector 4 that goes out to 6000m..... Then again it also plugs into my GPS to plot targets, gives the direction from your position in degrees, will calculate distance between two other point and elevation too. Plus a whole bunch of other crap. Granted they are big, and VERY expensive but they were also designed to be used by forward observers. That said, the Swarovski is about as good as can be had on the civilian market. Buy once, cry once.

I once considered buying a set of Vectors, but it was going to cost over $10k. The Swaros can be had under $1000 and will do any range that all but the most exceptional rifles and shooters can contemplate.
